You can make a cream sauce with soaked cashews - for pasta.   I made a macaroni and cheese sauce and didn't mind it unfortunately, the cashews didn't agree with me so it's off limits also. I use nutritional yeast for a parmesan-like taste for something like garlic noodles.  I really miss dairy but can't have so I don't let myself dwell over it. I make a creamy caesar dressing with homemade mayo, a bit of vinegar (lol, can't have citrus either but you can use lemon or lime for a twist), cracked pepper and a shredded clove of garlic - you can thin it with a bit of olive oil. You can use the same base to make a creamy dressing also - tex mex, add chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, oregano, etc. There are a lot of options. Coconut milk gives you some options for cream sauces. I buy a 7 lb bucket of coconut oil for cooking. You can use it on popcorn too with s&p. For coffee creamer I use a tsp of coconut oil in my coffee and blend it with my magic bullet and it is just as creamy as a regular cup of coffee.

I get it at times. Mine comes on with exercise, usually with outdoor activities. I hate it as I find the itching almost unbearable.

In Topic: Curious... Long Eyelashes?

17 April 2015 - 04:54 AM

Even though I haven't been diagnosed with Celiac I gave up gluten (and many other foods) close to four years ago. I have very long eyelashes. I used to cut them shorter when I was younger because people kept commenting on them - almost obsessively so I felt like a freak. My two boys also have very long eyelashes and are also gluten free due to health issues which have since been resolved. We don't present classically so haven't been tested but we do have other autoimmune issues.

I used to have many symptoms of Lupus but have since resolved.  I am still getting the rosacea flareups when my diet gets off. I find Penatin (the diaper cream) helps calm the redness overnight. I also take zinc supplements during flareups. Dairy and the wrong wine can set my face on fire within minutes of consuming. I am fair skinned so it's very obvious on me.

I know what you mean about the meds not working. I used to go to support groups (online) before the diet change and many of us were/are in the same boat. Just take one step at a time, be aware and research other avenues, and you will notice results. I was gluten light for the first year before I gave it up completely. It just takes time and commitment and then habit change will happen.

I do have arthritis in my spine which is thankfully in remission. I have to expand my diet restrictions to beyond just gluten. One of my biggest offenders are tomatoes. I also have to avoid dairy, potatoes, most vinegars, most legumes, citrus, most corn chips and corn (there is still one brand I can have, yay) high sugar, soy, fermented foods, and a few gluten-free grains. I am hoping to reintroduce these but after eliminating for 6 weeks I noticed once reintroducing they are bringing back cervical pain so they are off the list again. I have been gluten free for three years and it took a long time to really see results and I do elimination diets here and there. Nothing was immediate but it results were certainly there so I am glad I stuck it through. I hope it is just a gluten thing for me and maybe in another year I can reintroduce some of these foods I have to avoid.
